An "open volunteer" opportunity, participants sort through donated product including shelf-stable foods, breads and sweets, and at times meat products. Volunteers sort by category, checking for date and condition of cans and food containers. There is a regular opportunity to create assorted boxes of food for various agencies. The sorting takes place in the volunteer action center and the warehouse facility. All volunteers go to the website and complete a volunteer application (based on age--we have youth volunteer forms for those under 18). Upon completion of the form, the GMFB sends a Personal Identification Number to participants which they use to check in and out when serving. Volunteers also have the opportunity through our Volgistics system to register for various opportunities.
